Default Project Legacy SS

Whats up,
heres my new project, a 91 Legacy SS 5 speed. Just picked it up a few weeks ago, its got 209k miles on it but still runs strong and doesn't have any odd noises whatsoever. Leaks some oil but not much IMO.

The cars pretty much stock, has custom turbo back (2 1/2" piping I think) with some plainjain muffler out back, and a saab side mount intercooler up top as a top mount. both mods were done by the previous owner and I plan on swapping out both setups for bigger and better flow!

some of the other mods it allready has is a JDM bumper/bumper beam, an extra wingless trunk lid, 2 newish fenders with no rust, and a trunk full of spare stock parts lol

I'll get to the pics and post up my future mods after...

upcoming mods are...

vers.4 sti topmount, full 3" turbo back with bellmouth downpipe, custom 3" extension for proper length to match legacy wheel base, a bigger VF series turbo lol, stock sti sidefeed injectors, walbro fuel pump, some form of EM (theres 2 that I've been looking into), needs a right front axle, full tune up which I've allready got all the stuff for it, ect...

List is never ending lol, and when this 2.2T closed deck block pops... I've got another complete 2.2T sitting in my garage just waiting for a motor build!!!!

Cool project - hope the motor holds together.

I've got a set of stock '05 LGT side feed 550cc (I believe) injectors if you're interested.

Hmmm maybe, I'll have to findout if the lgt injectors are the same fitment as the 04-06 sti injectors. If they are I could use them in the 1.8l fuel rails I'm getting!

How much would you want for them??

I believe the STI parts are top feed(?), so if you are using STI TGV housings, you'll need top feeds. I'd take $200 shipped for these.

Actually the 04-06 sti injectors are side feed and look exactly like those!
When I get some more $$ after getting this car registered i'll be shooting you a PM.
